Finally! Andrea's design DiamondGirl is done. Even washed and blocked. I've done a few alterations though, knitting two more patternrepeats for front before casting off, and also making a regular sleevecap instead of the pleats on top-which I tried! And tried...and had to frog several times:-(
The yarn is also a substitute...my mum brought it for me when she came visiting in May. She had tried to knit a jacket out of it, but it did not want to become a jacket, so lucky me got it! It is Scala from Sandnesgarn ,but I think it must be discontinued, because I couldn't find it on their homepage. It is a mix of 26%wool, 64%cotton and 10%linen. 50gram/ca.100m, 20stitches on 3.5mm needles should be 10cm. The yarn is soft and comfortable, and will hopefully be warm enough even for winterwear(might even come in handy now, it is COLD outside...)And I'm always cold...
I've made a scarf too! Falling water lace, knitted in KittenMohair. It is 35x170cm blocked. Stitchpattern was found somewhere online.
I've also finished two pairs of socks, but those were testknits, and I can't post pictures of them- but they look gorgeous, and I hope the pattern will be out soon!
I cast on for a poncho today, in a bulky yarn, on 7mm needles- so it's a pretty quick knit, and a lot different to hold in my hands than those socks, knitted on 2mm!
We woke up to one of those glorious autumndays today, cold, crisp air and the fjord so still you could mirror yourself in it. The sun shone all day, and the moon is visiting us tonight. A nice change to all that rain we've had lately! Today's view, also from my porch, but in a slightly different direction. Enjoy!
Have a lovely weekend!
